    nega 138 help

    i bought a Nega 138 for my durst 138. the plastic guides on the bottom side do not line up with the slots in the groves in the enlarger. they are almost set to wide by almost 1/2" Is there a way to adjust this? Is this the right carrier? thanks for any help

    Hopefully the photos loaded
    The durst 138 I bought pretty much bare bones. It serial numbers is 612. That sounds early to me. I purchased a Nega 138 negative carrier. The distance between the groves on the enlarger is 10 1/4" the
    The distance between the 2 white pins on the carrier is 10 11/16"
    If I understand correctly, the white pins should slide in the groves.
    when one pin is in the grove, the other one hangs over.
    Thanks

    That carrier has some kind of distinctly non-factory DIY conversion, adapted to some other application. You'll have to re-adapt the positioning.

    Measured my Nega 138 as per the photo below. You may need to modify your Nega 138 to fit your enlarger. The metal pieces that hold the white pins on mine are riveted on. On yours it looks like they're bolted on so they may have been changed during its lifetime.

    The 10 1/4 between the grooves is what my two 138"s measure. Maybe there is play in the bolt holes of your Nega 138 and you can move them inwards.
